Around Coxwold in the North York Moors – a perfect location to explore both town and country

Our charming village of Coxwold with historic Church, and traditional village pub is the perfect location for a relaxing holiday, romantic break, foodie or shopping weekend – or as a base for walking, cycling or other outdoor pursuits. Or maybe you are a guest at a wedding at nearby Newburgh Priory? The village of Coxwold has hard-standing tennis courts which you are welcome to enjoy. We are confident you will want to tell your friends and return again and again as this is the perfect location for a boutique holiday cottage and shepherd’s hut …

There are so many wonderful places to visit right on our doorstep – and historic York and Harrogate are both around 45 minutes away depending on traffic. You can enjoy the best of Yorkshire: foodie heaven with great gastro pubs and restaurants; great heritage, from Shandy Hall, Newburgh Priory and Byland Abbey within the environs of Coxwold to Castle Howard or Fountains Abbey which are just a half hour drive away; great market towns with boutique shops like Easingwold, Helmsley and Malton, Yorkshire’s food capital; quirky places like the neighbouring village of Kilburn, famous for Mouseman furniture, and the famous White Horse carved into Sutton Bank; and the most amazing walking country right from our doorstep in the North York Moors national park. This really is the perfect location for a boutique holiday cottage and shepherd’s hut!
